CRAIG W BEHRENS


















Thanks for the space (and your
patience). I made the first posting too brief. Hopefully, this gives the gang
everything they need to compete for the really fine QRP prize.

 

1) Contest will be conducted from the
Monte Sano State Campgrounds Saturday evening (8/18/12) for 1 to 1.5 hours. The
contest will start at approximately 7:15 CDST

2) Eight (8) QRPers, for Four
2-person teams, will compete on Monte Sano.

3) Monte Sano teams will use Both
of their callsigns with /4 (i.e. Portable Operation)

4) These two-person teams will use
one of their callsigns in their 1st 15-minutes, and their other callsign in
their 2nd 15-minutes.

4) Contest exchange (both ways)
will be: callsign, Signal Report, and Operator’s Name (example: KX7XXX 599
Bill)

5) Only 2 HF Bands will be used:
One around 7.050 MHz; the other around 14.050 MHz

6) The two Monte Sano stations
will each use an Elecraft KX3 and Force-12 Sigma-40XK Antenna.

8) The winner will be determined
by whomever works the most Monte Sano Contest stations. (In the case of a tie,
